As some of you may (or may not) have heard, there is a new Power Rangers movie in the works.
The movie is being developed by Saban and Lionsgate.
This scares me.
Whenever Hollywood decides to make an movie adaptation of something I grew up with, the results are usually less than stellar.
The adaptation of The Power Rangers is supposed to have a much darker tone.
How they're going to manage making a bunch of "teenagers" in colorful spandex "dark" is beyond me.
They said that this movie will reboot the franchise.
I'm not sure if they're planning to have the same characters just played by different actors, or they're going with a new set of characters entirely.
I'd prefer the latter.
I'd prefer that this takes place in an "alternate universe".
This will give writers more creative freedom, which will hopefully translate to a much better movie.
I really hope that they don't decide to bring back the original actors to reprise their roles.
The worst thing they can do is have Jason David Frank come back as Tommy Oliver and have him lead the new team.
What will probably happen then is the Power Rangers will be in danger, they will close to being defeated, and Tommy will come in to save the day.
Cameos would be nice, but no more than that. Let the new team stand or fall on its own.

I left The Vlog Projects.
It might have been obvious that I left since there hasn't been a TVP video from me in a few weeks.
It wasn't an easy decision. Far from it. It was an extremely tough decision, but it's one I felt I had to make.
When I was contemplating the decision, I kept giving myself reasons to stay, but I just couldn't get myself to stay.
Every week I had less and less time to make videos.
Sure, I could give myself 10 minutes a week to simply record and upload, but I wanted to be able to properly think my videos through, edit them the way I'd like.
With the limited time I have, That's pretty much impossible.
I didn't feel it was fair to the other members that I couldn't live up to the expectation I set up for myself.
There were several videos towards the end of my time with TVP that I wasn't very proud of.
The quality of my videos declined in several areas. The decline continued with almost every video that followed, and I wasn't happy about it.
I was making videos simply for the sake of having a video up.
It was no longer a "Quality over Quantity" mentality for me.
I had agreed to upload a video every week, and I didn't want to break that agreement.
I'm proud of posting 31 videos through the span of 33 weeks, but all good things must come to an end.
I made some great friends during the project, and I couldn't be prouder of that fact.
